You just defended ignorance.

If you would pay some attention to what's going on in this country, you would realize that the number of people that drop out of high school is in direct correlation to the number of prisons that they are building.

So, that some person that can't read or write or do basic math is the same person who's breaking into my house.

You just keep defending people to not better themselves and perpetuate the cycle of poverty.

''You just keep defending people to not better themselves''

The guy wrote lyrics to a dead song, and you responded like an asshole. Who needs to better themselves? Please look in the mirror if you want to see someone who needs to better their self.

Joe, I know lots of folks who live in poverty, and they are just as literate, and eloquent as anyone else.
Poverty is external, ignorance is internal, and one is not necessarily to blame for the other.
Besides that, for once I find myself in agreement with JOTS, it probably was just a typo that started all of this.

Amen. Average Joe is a freakin joke.The dude does nothing but try to call people out as if hes a saint. The guy is probably sittin at home lonely with no women, no kids and no one that can stand him in the flesh. Ya big man you are Average Joe.

Once again all the dude did was post beautiful lyrics to a grateful dead song ( which joe had never heard so he assumed it wasn't). Tell me again what's so wrong about that?

Don't be too quick with your Amen, there were several defences of ignorance present, and I'm not attacking Joe by any stretch of the imagination.

Defending ignorance? No. Combating Arrogance? Maybe.You are making way to much out of this, it was a spelling error. It happens to people on this forum all the time, yet you don't call out the regulars...to correlate a misspelled word with crime is ridiculous.

Btw if you had a clue on what you were talking about you would know that large portion of the people in jail are there for non violent drug offenses.
